The Macon Cavalry (Madison Parish)

The Macon Cavalry was organized at Vicksburg, Mississippi, February 27, 1862, composed mostly of men from Madison Parish, Louisiana. The company enlisted in Confederate service at Delhi, Louisiana, on March 6, 1862. Initially attached to the 28th Mississippi Cavalry, it was subsequently assigned to the 6th Battalion Arkansas Cavalry as Company F. On April 20, 1862, the Macon Cavalry was consolidated with Company D, the Brierfield Rebels, of Carroll Parish, Louisiana; and on May 15, 1862, the consolidated Louisiana cavalry troop became Company C, 2nd Regiment Arkansas Cavalry.
